This is a collection of introductory tutorials and interactive simulations pertaining to electricity and magnetism. The resources are appropriate for beginners with limited experience in physics, covering topics that include capacitance, inductance, resistance, batteries, generators and motors, and biographical histories of pioneers in electromagnetism. Tutorials are paired with interactive Java simulations designed to enhance understanding of the physics relating to devices such as transformers, AC and DC generators, computer hard drives, pulse magnets, transistors, and more.

This item is part of a larger collection of materials on optics, microscopy, electricity, and magnetism developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and Florida State University.

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
